“ I’ve loved you for a thousand years. I’ll love you for a thousand more” 💙 When Katie walked down to the aisle to her husband to be to this song, my heart smiled! 💙 5 years ago, I walked down the aisle to the same song, with the same wishes and dreams, looking at my future husband and my entire life future. The song was perfect for that moment! 💙 And it was for Katie! Their gorgeous Kauai elopement was simple and perfect! 💙 Congratulations Katie and Jason! I wish you a thousand years of happiness! 💙

“Let me tell you, there is a reason that Vanessa was voted as Hawaii's #1 Photographer! She is AMAZING! ❤️ We had the pleasure of having her photograph our engagement pictures in Maui when we were visiting on vacation and we are so thankful we had the opportunity to work with her! ❤️ From the moment I reached out to her to the day of our photos, she was quick to respond, made our time with her so fun and relaxing, and the pictures we received....just...WOW! ❤️ Vanessa, thank you for capturing our love in our most favorite place! If I didn't already have our wedding photographer booked we would be asking you to come to Arizona for our wedding! ❤️ If you are considering booking Vanessa for your photos, be like Nike and JUST DO IT. You won't regret it!!” ❤️ WHAT A TESTIMONIAL!! Just make me cry this morning!!😭 Trisha, your kind words are so appreciated!!! ❤️

On your wedding day, you make promises to each other in front of your family and friends. You vow to love each other, cherish each other, forever. 💍 It got me thinking of the promises that I want to make to my wedding couples when they hire me. So here are my vows to you.... 💍 I vow to me more than just a photographer on your wedding day. I’ll be there to hold your dress when you have to use the bathroom, I’ll be there to help fix the strap on your shoes, I’ll be there to hand tissues to your grandmother as she’s crying. I’ll do everything in my power to make this the best day of your life! 💍 I vow to make sure you feel like the most stunning bride and/ or most handsome groom in front of my camera. I vow that any insecurities you have , you will not feel them in front of me. I vow to show you just how incredibly beautiful and special you are. 💍 I vow to have fun with you! You will see me more than any of your vendors on your wedding day, and even more than your significant other. I vow we will laugh, maybe even cry! But it won’t be boring! 💍 I vow to you to document your legacy to the best of my ability. I understand the importance of these images. I understand that these images will be seen by your children and grandchildren. I vow that this is not something I take lightly. 💍 I vow to you that hiring me will be one of the best decisions you make for your wedding day. I vow that you will be more than happy with my services. I vow that you will love your images. And I vow that I will take care of you, not only on your wedding day, but throughout the entire process. 💍 This I promise you. #30daysofsc

🌴 Yesterday’s wedding at @germainesluau was absolutely beautifully! 🌴 I knew the minute that Jeanine messaged me last year for her wedding, that I wanted her to choose me, as she was marrying a Hicks man—> no relation!! So it was absolutely a #teamhicks day! 🌴 Hawaii gave us gorgeous weather, the luau at @germainesluau was fun, and I’m pretty sure that Hershel married the most beautiful bride! Can’t wait to share more from this beautiful wedding with you guys! 🌴 Makeup: @projface Florals: @hauolishaku

🖤 I don’t photograph a ton of black and white images! 🖤 I love color so much, and I believe black and white photos should be timeless, classic shots. 🖤 I love this simple but perfect shot of Elisa on her wedding day. Filled with nerves, anticipation, and joy knowing that In a few minutes, she doesn’t belong to just herself anymore. She’s about to be a wife! 🖤

I've never had any couple of mine regret doing a First Look!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seriously, look at the emotion in Ethan's eyes as he turned to see his beautiful bride to be moments before their wedding! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While "tradition" states you shouldn't see your spouse till you walk down the aisle, I always tell my couples who are on the fence about doing one to really think about it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You are a decent amount of feet away when your spouse first sees you walking down the aisle. Unless you are perfect vision, you really can't even SEE their face until you get closer!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or, you can have an intimate moment like this, just you two, up close and personal! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I LOVE first looks and I think you will too! Check out my blog post as well talking more about first looks! #weddingwednesday
